The Faculty of Mass Communication, in cooperation with the Association of Journalists of Kosovo, supported by UN Women, in the framework of the regional project “Transformational Financing for Gender Equality towards more transparent, inclusive and accountable governance in the Western Balkans” funded by SIDA, organized a workshop with AAB College students on the topic “Gender Responsive Budgeting”.
The workshop organized with the students of the Faculty of Communication had the following objectives:
• Enabling students to report on Gender Responsive Budgeting in Kosovo in an impartial, gender sensitive and ethical manner.
• Increasing awareness and understanding of gender inequalities in Kosovo.
• Expanding students’ knowledge of how gender inequalities can be addressed through GRB.
• Supporting students in developing concrete ideas and methodologies for drafting GRB reports.
Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB) is a term often used by Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), international donors, and government officials.
Kosovo has a strong legal framework that supports and obligates all institutions at the local and central level to implement Gender Responsive Budgeting.
Even though GRB is a legal obligation that is expected to be implemented by public institutions, its implementation levels remain low.
